Nice motel with awesome location. Right next to the beach and the sunset is directly viewable from the rooms on the 3rd floor. Very very close to the happening part of Pismo. The lady at the reception was amazing. They have a nice 'Get you Started' free breakfast with coffee, juice, muffins etc. We reached late (almost at finishing time) and the same female very pleasantly let us sit and eat till we wanted. They even had coffee in the rooms, which is not available at other motels.We were allowed to check out 2-3 hours late without any problems. Also, free high speed internet.

We had reservations for this hotel about 2 weeks in advance, as soon as we parked I knew it wasn't a place for us. It was dirty, smelled of cigarettes, the phone didn't work, no tissues, no phone book, couldn't see the beach. When making the reservations I asked the clerk several questions including if the rooms are clean and have a view of the beach, her reply on every question was, "of couse". I think she left off the NOT! When we went back down to the office to "unreserve" the clerk was right outside the door smoking. We ended up at the Pismo Beach Hotel and it was wonderful!

This hotel is very easy to find, it is located right off of the freeway but not so close that you have to hear the noises of the freeway.I have a house full of kids and i needed somewhere to go and just get away for the day,this was the perfect place.Checking in was a breeze, the front desk staff was pleasant and very knowledgeable about the area which has some of the tastiest resteraunts you could ever dream of.Also, while checking in, just look out of the window to your right and enjoy the calmness and beauty of the ocean, that alone let's you know that you will have a relaxing stay.The room that i chose suited me perfectly, and listening to the sound of the ocean while i slept helped me wake up the next morning feeling refreshed and energized.I highly recomend this hotel for a family or solo getaway.

I would stay here again. If you are looking for a simple motel by the beach for a good rate then Edgewater is fine.

Pismo Beach is basically all holiday accommodation. The motel is a block off the beach. My room was decent. The furnishings I would say almost on par with a Holiday Inn. The overall look of the hotel is a bit like a Motel 6. Dated, but kept up. The bathroom was on the basic side but it was clean.

Ami at the front desk, a born and bred Pismo Beacher (?) was super friendly and had some good suggestions. Breakfast consisted of fresh baked muffins, coffee and orange juice. Simple, but okay to get you going.

I'd say it is a bit on the elementary side to take your bride there for your honeymoon :-), but if you just want a hotel central to everything and a block off the beach (And a great beach at that), it is decent.

There was wireless access - fair, a pool that we didn't use and free parking.

Remember that it is a motel, not a hotel, so set your expectations that way. If you have a noisy neighbor coming home late at night, the walls are thin. For the price point and location it is fine. I took my 6 and 9 year old girls there with me and I would never take them somewhere that was unclean or in a dodgy area.

On Saturday night there was barely a spare parking space - it is probably a hundred+ rooms - and the weekend was cold and blowing a gale - so others must think it is okay.

We went to the Edgewater Inn in Pismo Beach for our anniversary and stayed in the Executive Suite. There was no one above us or below us. Our view was the ocean. It was spaceous with a kitchenette, living room and king size bed with a jacquizi tub. We had a great time. It is within walking distance to the beach and downtown Pismo. The people working there were friendly and curteous. I would highly recommend it. Loved it!

As usual my stay at Edgewater was wonderful! Clean, beautiful view, easy access steps to beach. Spa and pool was wonderful since weather really wasn't great for kids to get in the ocean. Wonderful addition to having microwave in room (not sure if that is now the norm.) but, it was wonderful! Friendly staff, as usual. Only complaint is it would be nice to have pool towels avail. w/o having to go to the office and requesting. It's a wonderful affordable place for families with young kids...they are not picky or snotty.
